Three at Robbins Library honoredDisplaying some of their work and their Awards are, from left, Vicky Slavin, Ryan Livergood and Rebecca Meehan.

Robbins Library took away three honors as the Massachusetts Library Association (MLA) presented the 21th biennial public-relations awards.

The library received a first in the bookmarks category for the foreign-language film bookmarks created by Vicky Slavin, a second in the logo category for the “We Want You to Sign Up for a Library Card” logo designed by Neva Corbo-Hudak and a third in the news coverage category for the Open Book column that appears in The Arlington Advocate, started by Ryan Livergood and Rebecca Meehan.

Livergood, the town's director of libraries, was presented with three award certificates by MLA Public Relations Committee at the PR awards ceremony at the MLA's annual conference at the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge.

In a separate event, Barbara Fulchino, head of circulation at the Robbins Library, was honored as the outstanding paralibrarian for 2013.

"We have an amazing library staff that does such a wonderful job of getting the word out about all of the great programs and services both the Robbins Library and Fox Branch Library have to offer," Livergood said in a news release.

"These awards were the direct result of a fantastic group effort, and I am so happy our whole library team was recognized for the great PR that we do.”

Winners were chosen by a panel of independent judges from the public relations, press and library fields. Evaluation criteria included graphic design, originality, and presentation.  Entries were submitted for 20 categories, including brochures, community reading programs, social media and websites.  

The Robbins Library is a vital community center that connects people with traditional and technological resources for lifelong learning, intellectual pursuits and leisure. The Library responds to citizens’ needs with services and activities in a welcoming setting built on a history of free and equal access to information for all Arlington residents. Visit in person or on the Web.

The library association advocates for libraries, librarians, and library staff, defends intellectual freedom and provides a forum for leadership, communication, professional development, and networking to keep libraries vital. MLA has been working libraries for more than 100 years, representing members from all library types in the Commonwealth. For more information, see www.masslib.org.
